Where is it?
QPAC is located in South Bank’s Cultural Precinct, which includes the Queensland Muesum and Sciencentre, the Queensland Art Gallery and the Gallery of Modern Art (GOMA). A stone’s throw from the South Bank Parklands, where you can find Streets Beach, an assortment of cafes, The Wheel of Brisbane and full calendar of diverse events.

Airtrain’s services aren’t only frequent, they’re also reliable, comfortable and affordable.
QPAC is conveniently located just a short walk from South Brisbane station, making it easily accessible for Airtrain customers travelling from Brisbane Airport to QPAC.

Eat & Drink
QPAC has a range of venues to grab a bite and a drink at before and after the show. Boasting a café, a restaurant, a wine bar and plenty of show bars, there’s something to suit every appetite and every taste.
We recommend arriving to your performance with plenty of time to relax, unwind and soak up the energetic atmosphere before the show.
The future of QPAC
In 2019, the Queensland Government unveiled plans to add a fifth theatre to QPAC. The addition of the architecturally designed theatre will make QPAC the biggest performing arts venue in Australia. Construction is set to commence in 2020 and the project is aiming for completion in 2022.
For theatre-lovers, tourists and locals alike, this is an extremely exciting addition to the already much-loved QPAC venue.
